I was sorry to read the passing Sir Knight Speer. I first met Dick when I was made a Sir Knight in Toledo #7 back so many years ago.And of course during my year as Commander.When I was at Templar events I always seeked out Dick to say hello. The good Lord now has another Christian soldier to help lead his flock of followers. I will keep Richard and your family in my prayers.

He was such a protector of the fairness and fresh start available through the bankruptcy laws. His passion and hard work - his strength - a fighter for the downtrodden.

I had the honor of serving under Judge Speer as an extern during my post 1L year.
The Judge was a scholar, a gentleman, and a great Christian steward, all of which he unapologetically would administer from the bench.
A great man has passed onto a better, invisible chapter.

My sympathies to the family. The Courtroom can be a scary place for clients and lawyers too. Judge Speer always told lawyers "sit down and be comfortable". His wit was legendary. I often stayed after my hearings just for grins. He will be missed.

My most sincere condolences to Judge Speer's family. I had the privilege of practicing before him for the past 20 years. It was an honor to know him and belong to the masonic fraternity with him.
